In case you are wondering, I haven’t disappeared! I’ve been working on some fun graphic design projects for our company that have been using some of my sewing time. I’ve been bitten by the “spring sewing” bug and have lots of plans… I just need to hit some deadlines first!

I thought I’d pop by today to let you know why I’m super excited! Remember the little zakka-inspired Scalloped Edge Basket I made last year?

I’ve written a tutorial for the basket for Sew Mama Sew and it posted today – now you can make one too! I’ve added an optional handle to the tutorial too, which is perfect for a little Easter basket. (Just in case you are planning ahead!) The basket on its own is great for a little gift basket, or for collecting all of those little things in your house that need a home. It’s a good size, so it holds a lot without being too huge. And – bonus, it uses your favorite fat quarters!

Right now, since I managed to win the rights to the gray one, I have filled it up with my wooden spools and vintage measuring tape. It looks so cute sitting in my sewing room! The kids have had words over the pink basket already and now I need to make another one so they can both have one for Easter. I hope you like it! Find the tutorial on Sew Mama Sew.
